You may be eligible to be enrolled to vote in the local government ordinary election on Saturday 16 October 2021 if you are an owner and/or occupier of rateable property in the Shire of Mingenew.

Residents

You are automatically enrolled to vote if you are on the State Electoral Roll as at 5.00 pm on Friday, 27 August 2021 (close of enrolments). If you are not already on the State Electoral Roll and meet the eligibility criteria, or if you have changed address recently, you must complete an enrolment form online at https://www.elections.wa.gov.au/enrol-vote.

Non-Resident Owners and Occupiers

All residents in a local government district who are enrolled on the State Electoral Roll are automatically enrolled on the corresponding local government roll. People who reside outside of the Shire but own property in the Shire or occupy property within the local government but are not enrolled for that property on the State Electoral Roll can apply to their local government to be included on the roll as an owner/occupier, as long as they are eligible electors. A body corporate may apply to have up to two eligible nominees to be included on the owner/occupier roll.

All eligible electors are allowed to vote once in any district for which they are enrolled. If a person lives within one district and owns or occupies property in a different district, then they may be entitled to a vote in both areas provided they are enrolled for those addresses. To obtain further information or to enroll as an owner/occupier, contact the Shire or visit our website at https://mingenew.wa.gov.au/elections/.

Please contact the Shire office on (08) 99281102 or email governance@mingenew.wa.gov.au to check your eligibility for the Owners and Occupiers Roll, to obtain enrolments forms or for any other Election enquiries.
